Dinklage missed out on a nomination previous year due to Game of Thrones' late premiere date, which disqualified the series from the 2017 competition.

HBO's (T.N) medieval fantasy series "Game of Thrones" led nominations for the Emmy Awards on Thursday that spanned satire to the supernatural, but streaming service Netflix (NFLX.O) knocked HBO off its 17-year pedestal as the network with the most nods.

Some of TV's biggest stars, as well as headline-grabbing shows, failed to get nominations this year.

Lead actress drama takes last year's victor Elisabeth Moss for "The Handmaid's Tale" with Claire Foy, "The Crown"; Tatiana Maslany, "Orphan Black"; Sandra Oh, "Killing Eve"; Keri Russell, "The Americans"; and Evan Rachel Wood for "Westworld". Though Graham didn't earn an Emmy bid for the long-running HBO series, the show is nevertheless up for Best Comedy Series, Best Comedy Actor (Larry David) and twice for Best Comedy Guest Actor (Lin-Manuel Miranda and Bryan Cranston).

"The Handmaid's Tale, " the dystopian sci-fi series that claimed top drama honors last year, drew 20 bids, including one for last year's best actress victor, Elisabeth Moss, and supporting bids for Alexis Bledel, Ann Dowd, Yvonne Strahovski and Joseph Fiennes.

Samsung Galaxy Note9's price and release date revealed
Also, the fact that Ice Universe , a well-known Samsung leaker, posted it on Twitter is one more reason to trust it. The design of the upcoming Samsung Galaxy Note 9 have been through multiple leaks.

Lead actor in a drama series: Jason Bateman (Ozark); Sterling K Brown (This Is Us); Ed Harris (Westworld); Matthew Rhys (The Americans); Milo Ventimiglia (This Is Us); and Jeffrey Wright (Westworld).

Donald Glover's "Atlanta" was the top comedy nominee with 16 bids, poised to take advantage of this year's absence of three-time victor "Veep".

Other best drama contenders include "The Crown", NBC's family drama "This Is Us", Cold War spy series "The Americans" on FX (FOXA.O) and "Westworld".

Also among the nominations: singer John Legend is up for lead actor in a miniseries or movie for his work in "Jesus Christ Superstar: Live in Concert". She wasn't nominated for an Emmy in 2017, either.
